    I am writing a letter of motivation to go with my application for a nursing post and would like to add the following:

    "I keep myself up to date with the latest developments in nursing".

    My attempts: "
    Je fais la mise à jour avec les derniers développments d'infirmier" or "Je suis au courant des derniers développments d'infirmier" but I don't want to give the impression that I know it all and am completely up to date, rather that I regularly read current research and nursing journals to keep myself up to date and my practice current. Thanks for any help.

    Je fais la mise à jour = I'm doing the update for my computer/mobile phone etc.
    Je suis au courant = I'm up to date

    I would go for "Je me tiens au courant des derniers développements en matière d'infirmerie".

    Je ne sais pas si on peut utiliser "infirmerie" dans ce sens, Guill :(
    peut-être "en matière de soins infirmiers" ?

    Perhaps I should write just that - that I regularly read research papers and nursing journals to keep myself up to date and my practice current. "Je lis les revues d'infirmiers et les recherches régulièrement afin rester au courant et la pratique mis à jour".
